Upper lip twitching / Muscle spasm
liptwitch posted:
For the past week my upper lip (right side) has been twitching like a small muscle spasm. Any ideas what may be causing this?? It only happens when the lip is in the relaxed state. whiel it is twitching, when I touch it or move it then it stops.

Hi liptwitch,

Read WebMD Tic Disorders (Motor Tics) and Twitches to learn more about your symptom. In most cases, this seems to be a normal, perfectly harmful temporary spasm that most people experience at some point in their lives. If it seems to continue for a long period of time, you might want to speak with your doctor.
Take care!
Best Wishes! Amelia
